A hanging rail can be useful in various places in your home. Many people place rails in a closet so they can hang clothes or rails in a bathroom so that they can hang towels. Some people even use hanging rails in their kitchen so they can hang pots or utensils from them. Regardless of why and where you are hanging one, you may have many questions about them. We have a wide selection of rails, brackets, and sockets, helping you to get the right one for your project.
Here are a few of the questions you may have about hanging rails and fittings.
Hanging rails are bars that can be placed along a wall. The fittings are the parts that hold the bar in place. Typically, there are three pieces that make up a hanging rail set up. This includes rail, brackets, and sockets. The rail is the bar that you can hang things from. The brackets are what hold the bar in place. The socket adheres to the wall. The bracket rests inside of the socket.
There are many factors you need to consider when selecting hanging rails and fittings. The biggest factor you will need to consider is the weight of the items you are placing on the rail. Generally speaking, the more weight you are placing, the thicker you want your bracket, socket, and railing to be. This ensures it can hold the weight of the items you are hanging on there. Another factor to consider is colour. Sockets, brackets, and railings are available in a wide array of colours including brass, silver, gold and white. Lastly, you need to consider the type of metal the items are made from. Some are made from chrome, while others are made from aluminium. Aluminium rusts and bends more readily than chrome. But it is also cheaper. Considering all of these factors will help you select the rail and fittings that are best for your needs.
